Short Track Champion Katie Compton (Planet Bike) won the short tract Pro-XCT Subaru Cup. Current champion Georgia Gould (Luna) winer of Saturdays race did her best to stay with Compton during the heat, but had to settle for second place. Georgia has a hot motor and it heats up!

“The heat was tough,” said Compton. “The course had a lot of power climbing and I had better legs today. I wanted to let someone set the pace and sit in and follow Georgia. I knew she was going to be strong.

Sue told us on the phone before the races she was going to get a podium, Sue Butler lives in Portland, OR and races for (River City Bicylces) fifth spot on the podium with no support, so this is a huge effort. It goes to show what focus can do!

Gould did not let up one bit despite what had grown to a large gap. “I was closing a little at the end but I had just one steady speed,” she said. “It was hard "heat". I was suffering and just pushed myself as hard as I could.”

Butler had one of her best results ever, which she attributed to some time racing on the road. “I have good fitness after Nature Valley last week,” she said. “I did three crits which probably gave me good fitness for this.”

Compton was chased only by Gould by lap three. .

Georgia Gould extends her lead in Pro-XCT Series!

We got the news early today by one of our new fitters in Wisconsin "Cody Gunst". He texted a pic of Georgia riding away from what is known as "Trekville". Trek is made in Wisconsin. Cody was just here for a week of training to become a new dealer. Ask him why he uses WN over all the other ideas and he will respond with "IT WORKS", he had it done and knows the difference it can make in your cycling.

Perhaps that is why so many pros use our setups. It simply allows you to get everything out of your body!

US TT Championships - Bend, OR.

All you have to do is miss a gear or blink your eyes!

We see a lot of guys going to the wind tunnel only to get slower? Setting your muscles to be submaxximally active is going to put you down in results, even if you are more aero.
